Why works on those buildings starts so slowly?

Maybe because in the last weeks we had a very cold and freezing winter in Germany. Then most construction sites stop their work for various reasons.

No, it's not yet. But they'll start pretty soon.

So the brickhouse under construction we see last is the house before Rampische Straße 33 in other words Rampische Straße 31 or 29?

It's the Rampische 29 reconstruction that is driven by the private GHND organization, ja.

That's the bitter pill we have to take, since modernists are still able to spoil our historical cityscapes through (political) power.

Well what´s the point of a reconstructed Neumarkt if you don´t reconstruct?
-kind of missing the point completly I think!

If it was for the will of the citizen and the private organisations, we would have a fully reconstructed Neumarkt.
But you know, there are modernist architects, advisors (who don't have a clue of anything), an army of urban planners, politicians, bureaucrats, ideologists, idiots... Who effectually avert such a satisfying result

I am very jealous at your city and your country that they have the will and the means to rebuild such gorgeous buildings! Love it!

It's ironic really as the parts which have been faithfully reconstructed are the most successful! The 'modern' stuff is hideous in comparison.

They are making Europe ugly, one day at a time.

Greetings - I am new to Skyscraper City, but have been following this thread for months. I have studied Dresden's architecture for over twenty years, and am thrilled to see all the reconstruction that continues.

I cannot understand why a block of houses with baroque facades would be constructed WITH the odd, modern and relatively ugly building thrown in here and there. What is the point?

I am of the opinion that everything north of Johann-Strasse should be faithfully reconstructed - even the Neo-Renaissance buildings comprising the "Koenig-Johann durchbruch" of the 1880s. While this will likely never even be considered, I hope that the Hotel Stadt Rom and Palais de Saxe will be reconstructed.

I will continue to follow with great interest!

Welcome to the forum

I totally agree with your point of reconstructing the given area, at least inside Külz-Ring some certain standards should break through.

So, how come you studied the city's architecture for about 20 years? Are you a historian or something similar?

What's happening at Heinrichstraße? There seems to be some sort of controversy over the buildings that are planned. From what I can gather, this has been suggested:



http://www.neumarkt-dresden.de/

It would be a beautiful reconstruction, but it seems that the owners of the site, Florana KG, want a hideous modern construction instead? (don't they also own that disgraceful grey slab hotel?)

I think they idea behind it is to throw the Baroque reconstructions into relief and to demonstrate how the Neumarkt might've developed over the course of the 20th century if it hadn't been blown to pieces. It's supposed, I believe, to make the architectural reconstructions of the Neumarkt look more 'natural'. I happen to disagree I too believe that where ever possible accurate reconstructions should've been built! That modern, grey hotel cost something like 40 million Euros and it's horrible! What a total waste of money. I don't live in Dresden or even in Germany but if I did then I wouldn't want to look at that sort of rubbish. It's been foisted upon us by 'modern' architects again and again and again, throughout Europe, and I don't know when they'll get the message that people don't want it, especially in historically and architecturally sensitive areas like Dresden's Neumarkt.
